My husband and I went to a small local breakfast spot for the first time. When we got there, there was only one other couple so we sat in a booth instead of a table for two. Shortly after it got really busy and a family of 4 came in wanting to dine in. There wasn't a table for them to sit altogether comfortably but my husband and I offered to move to a smaller table and give them ours. The owner brought us a banana nutella crepe to thank us for being flexible!
I could tell the owner felt relieved that we were willing to change tables in order to accommodate the other customers. I am glad we did that because not moving could have been a threat to losing a customer for them.

I have a friend that was in desperate need of a ride so I ordered my friend a lyft with account. I didn't fiscally have it in my budget to do so but I pulled from my savings.
I am glad I was able to help but I am starting to wondering where my line is. What is the difference between assisting a friend in need and being taken advantage of.

my spouse and i worked together to declutter and organize two important living areas in our house where we both spend much time.
It will save time and stress from work and doing other things to lead the life i want ...and she does too.

So many nice local places to go birding--MB, Cayucos, El Chorro, Laguna.
Great way to be outside, in nature, fresh air, get exercise--esp during this difficult pandemic.

I'm very thankful that we are not in lockdown in Arizona. I am fortunate enough to be able to work and go to the gym regularly which is amazing.
this allows me to make money and have a purpose day to day. The gym also helps me get tuned up for my day.

The fact that I’m in the lab I am for my dissertation research is incredible. A lot of things happened to work out: their lab moving, a project that interested me so much, my hard work and patience.
It reminded me how lucky I am to be studying something I genuinely love, because who knows what i would be doing if this hadn’t happened.

I slept through the night last night, and I haven’t slept through the night in weeks.
I woke up refreshed and ready for my day.

At work guests thanked me for working during these times and for still having such a positive outlook. Guests like that I make their vacation special
I feel good when I make others happy.

I am thankful to still have a job
I know with covid a lot of people have been laid off in the hospitality industry so I feel thankful for that.

I served her wedding rehearsal
I felt like I made her special day a little bit brighter, and smoother so she didn’t have to worry about details.

I stored some of their items at my house for a while, while they were wait to move.
As always I was happy to help a friend. It wasn't a huge deal. I had the space that she needed, that's it for the most part.

My coworkers and I did an exercise where we told another coworker what we appreciate about them. My coworker told me that he appreciates that I'm always level headed and calm at work.
I felt appreciated and realized there are qualities that people see in me that I don't always notice myself.

I am very grateful for my puppy! She brings me so much joy and calms me down when I'm anxious.
My puppy makes it easy for me to focus on school and helps me get more exercise. She makes me appreciate the little things in life.

After a long week of training I finally had a chance to relax, treat myself to in and out .I also had my trainer help me with my muscles, and took an amazing nap in my heated blanket. I also found a new podcast and enjoyed winding down.
I feel rested and was the perfect way of treating myself after a long day of pushing myself. I had the chance to look back on the week and be proud my myself.

My mom makes an effort every single day to do whatever she can to make mine and my brother’s life the best that it can possibly be. I do not recognize this enough.
It made me feel loved and shows me the perfect example of the type of mother I want to be.

My friends help me when I am having anxiety. They help me see more clearly and bring me back down to earth. Sometimes it is hard for me to live in the moment when I feel insecure or upset, but they help me to feel better.
Danielle and Forever actions helped me because sometimes I feel very alone. They help me feel safe and secure. They reassure me that I am not alone and they reach out when they know I need a friend.
